Principal’s Message: 

 

Dear Imai Families,

 

We have had a great start so far. Yesterday we had our first fire drill and our students did very well walking out of their classroom quietly, in a single-file line and patiently waiting while we were all done. At the beginning of the school year we had our first assembly to go over the rules and expectations using our behavior matrix. Our matrix becomes part of the daily routine, so please familiarize yourself with it and remind your child of the expectations. 

 

 

Kindergarteners started the i-ready assessment yesterday and will continue for the rest of the week.  You will have access to the scores in a couple of weeks so be on the lookout for an email with that information. 

 

Don’t forget Back to School Night is tomorrow. It is an opportunity for you to learn about what your child is learning in the classroom and to ask general questions. It is an event for parents only, please leave your children at home. 

 

Have a wonderful rest of the week. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Arline Siam

Principal

District News:

 

School meals are free, but fill out the EzSchool Meals application to help your school

MVWSD will continue to provide free meals to all students as part of California’s universal meal program. Breakfast and lunches are available daily.

 

We ask you to please Apply at EzSchool Meals to help MVWSD receive additional funding to support students who are in need, and may help your family.

 

This Free and Reduced Price Meals benefit is not limited to meals only. If your child is eligible for free and/or reduced-price meals, your family could get medical benefits, housing benefits, utilities benefits and more.

 

Students who qualify for free and/or reduced-price meals may be eligible for P-EBT cards. The more applications your school gathers at the start of each school year, the more additional funding it can receive for all kinds of programs that help children at your school.

 

If you are currently out of work, you may qualify and help your school, regardless of your financial situation. Apply at https://secure.ezmealapp.com/ or call your school office.
